On October 7, 2019 at 1:15am the Easton Police Department received a call from a farm on Sport Hill Road reporting that suspicious persons were on the property and were attempting to steal Legally Regulated Hemp Plants which are used to produce CDB oil.
A short while later an officer responding to the location observed a dark colored Honda with a NY registration parked near the scene at Sport Hill Road and Adams Road. The officer went to investigate the vehicle and it then fled the scene. The officer pursued the vehicle south on Rt. 59. The vehicle then was involved in a one car crash near the Exit 46 entrance/exit ramp to the Merritt Parkway. The passenger was apprehended at the scene and was transported to St. Vincent’s Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries by AMR. The operator was able to flee on foot. The Westport Police Department K-9 unit responded to the scene and conducted a search with negative results. Further investigation showed that the vehicle was stolen from East Haven, CT on 9/26/19. Approximately two hours later a Trooper with the Connecticut State Police apprehended the suspect alongside the Merritt Parkway near Exit 49 and he was turned over to the Easton Police Department. The Fairfield Police Department was on scene and assisted in the investigation.
The investigation is continuing into two other suspicious incidents at the location in recent weeks.
Both persons were processed and held on a $10,000.00 bond and were transported to 172 Golden Hill Street (GA-2) Bridgeport, CT for arraignment.
